Regarding falling: skate with some protective equipment, that will take a lot of anxiety away. I used to were an inline girdle and shinguards (the knee-cap is the important piece here) under very wide pants and elbow pads beneath a large hoodie the first few times on public skates, later I switched to wearing them in the open. If you try to reach your limits you will fall, so protect yourself - the style of skating you want to learn is something different from most people at a public skate who want to be able to go in slow, large circles while holding hands (which is legitimate as-well).

: You might also try inline-skating, a lot of the motion carries over between those plus you can do it anywhere.
